A couple weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the first in a series of String Area Concerts being put on by McGill. These one hour free concerts showcase talented McGill students playing music from a variety of eras. For example the concert I attended had a Baroque theme, in which all the musicians played movements from various Bach concertos. This concert series is a great way to learn about more tradition forms of music, while supporting student musicians. There are three more concerts scheduled this month (October 16, 23, 30) taking place at the Schulich School of Music at 6:00 pm.
